Workspaces    
    .Rdata
GEOG 4/595 data   [geog495.RData]

Download .csv data sets to a working directory, and read into R using, for example

sumcr <- read.csv("sumcr.csv"), or
sumcr <- read.csv(file.choose())

Download shapefile components to a working directory, and see map-drawing scripts.

Download .Rdata files to a working directory, and use load() or Load workspace menu (e.g.):

load("E:/DataVis/working/sp/geog495.RData")
